I don't talk about poetry enough here. I know. And this will not really be a post about poetry RA, but I am going to try to at least get the conversation started.
My alma matter claims to have found the second only known photo of Emily Dickinson. Click here for the story.
This got me thinking about poetry and leisure reading. Personally, I enjoy poetry when I read it, but I don't actively seek it out. I especially like the poetry I was introduced to in high school and college, and as should come as no surprise, I still know all of Annabelle Lee and most of The Raven, both by Edgar Allan Poe, by heart.
But even though I enjoyed the poetry I was exposed to in a classroom setting, I have not sought out more in my own leisure reading. Why? I am not sure.
So if you have any poets or poetry from the last 30-40 years that you would like to suggest to me, I am game. Now is your chance to tell me what to read. Leave a comment and I'll let you know how it goes.
